New way to beat Big Boos in SMW discovered.

Post by VG_Addict » Wed Jan 11, 2017 11:33 am

Remember what a pain in the ass the Big Boos were in Super Mario World? Well, an easy way to beat them has been discovered.

Super Mario Broth shows that Big Boos can be beaten simply by sliding down stairs: http://www.suppermariobroth.com/post/15 ... efeated-by

Amazing how new things are being discovered in 20+ year old games.

I JUST saw this on tumblr. Awesome stuff! Love it when they find new ways to play in old games.

To be fair, I've seen people use the slide to kill the unkillable before.

In a way it's kind of obvious it would work though good luck finding a big boo with a slanted surface in the first game.

Doen't it kill those sawblades, too? I wonder if these tricks work in SMM.

Pretty certain I already knew this. I mean, the game came out in 91. But good on those guys for the find.

I think a bigger question is how did we learn about half-A presses in Super Mario 64 before this?
